73% of the Mexican population believe "El Chapo" bribed former presidents

The vast majority of Mexicans believe that "El Chapo" bribed the country's presidents.

A poll revealed that 73 percent of Mexicans believe that "El Chapo" bribed former presidents Enrique Peña Nieto and Felipe Calderón.
A survey, conducted by Parametría, showed that nearly three-quarters of those polled believe that the Sinaloa cartel boss was telling the truth when he said he paid officials millions.
Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán is currently awaiting sentencing in the United States, having been convicted of the ten criminal charges against him.

Mining company VALE evacuates more than 200 people due to another "unstable" dam.

More than 200 Brazilians were evacuated from their homes after the mining company VALE warned of the danger of another dam collapsing.

In Nova Lima, in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, a group of technicians activated preventive evacuation protocols after detecting faults in an inactive tailings dump.

The authorities have relocated the residents of San Sebastián de Aguas Claras to community centers, while they examine the dam, which contains 3 billion liters of toxic waste.

Last month, the collapse of another dam of the world's largest iron exporter caused an avalanche of mud and toxic waste that resulted in an estimated 300 deaths and irreparable ecological damage.


14th week of Yellow vests protests against globalization

The "yellow vests" demonstrated against the established powers for the fourteenth consecutive weekend in France.

Thousands of French people took to the streets again to demand greater purchasing power and oppose the globalist policies of French President Emmanuel Macron.

The protests were supported by the Italian government, which urged the demonstrators not to give up in anticipation of what it calls the birth of a new Europe.

The Macron government, which initially suspended some tax increases for six months due to massive protests, announced that it is finalizing a bill to toughen laws against 'yellow vests.'
